The EXAKT 312 Pathology Saw can easily cut metal implants or screws that may be encountered during the grossing process, without destroying the sample. Even very small specimens can be cut safely and precisely!
Processing bone and bone/soft tissue samples with a butcher’s saw produces poor results and handling is extremely dangerous.
Even small diamond saws create artifact and limit the size of a sample that can be grossed. And neither can easily handle the surprise of an implanted device.
The EXAKT Pathology Saw provides quick, precise sectioning of the sample. It delivers debris-free, undamaged surfaces for Surgical Pathology and cassette-size samples to enhance tissue processing for histology. It combines the highest level of safety with equally high-quality results.
EXAKT Cutting and Grinding devices don’t cut with a sharp sawtooth blade, but cut and grind with minimal thermal and mechanical stress on the sample. The EXAKT CP (Contact Point) process ensures pinpoint application of energy. Even in complex components with materials of different hardnesses, the cut is guided precisely while the sample surface quality is left unimpaired.
EXAKT Cutting and Grinding Technology enables you to approach sample examination in ways which simply weren’t possible for your application until now. Long service life, reliability, and minimal service expenditure also contribute considerably to the economical use of our systems.
› Almost no burring, fraying or tearing out on the cut surface
› Safe operation – Minimal risk of the operator being cut
› Coplanar cuts with very tight tolerances
› Flexible and very precise alignment of the samples
› Cutting process for a wide variety of different materials, composites and components
› A variety of options for sample support
Don’t take chances when handling rare or unique samples. Mistakes in the preparation process delay your work and can provide false results. That’s a risk you shouldn’t take. Trust the decades of experience with globally tried-and-tested thin section cutting technology from EXAKT. We guide you through the sample preparation process, which helps your unique research results.
The EXAKT 312 Diamond Band Saw was developed to meet the special requirements of pathology and anatomy (human and
veterinary) medicine. With the EXAKT 312, even the smallest cuts down to about 1 mm can be made freehand with almost no risk of cuts to the operator. Whether it’s soft tissue, bones or implants in the bone-tissue composite, it can all be cut effortlessly and quickly. Not
only this, but it does it with a cut surface quality surpassing every other process available. An initial assessment of the cut can generally be made right away. Outfitted with a variety of different options, the EXAKT 312 can be adapted to individual handling and operating comfort needs.
The EXAKT 312 is very easy to operate and clean. Band changes can be made without tools or adjustment. The stainless-steel housing is consistently designed for good water and tissue drainage. For thorough cleaning and disinfection, modules can be quickly removed without the use of tools.
The EXAKT 312 Diamond Band Saw doesn’t cut, it grinds very precisely. This is the reason for the outstanding surface quality
of the cut surface. Complete preservation of the sample with a surface free of artifacts, micro-fractures and breakouts enables
immediate inspection and assessment of the sample. Even the cell information of very different tissue densities remains
intact. Since the cutting band grinds rather than cuts, there is no immediate risk of injury to the operator in case of inadvertent
contact, which is a first in work safety! Tricky samples with implants, in particular, can be precisely
and safely processed. Guiding the cut is easy and precise, and the process is clean and quiet. Water cooling also reduces dust
development and ensures that the sample doesn’t overheat.
› Superior cut surface quality
› Maximum working safety enables cuts down to 1 mm
› Integrated water cooling prevents overheating of the sample, reduces dust development and keeps the cutting band cleaner
› Cutting band changed without tools or readjustment
› Fast and easy cleaning through the tool-less removal of contaminated modules
› Reliable and time-tested – Hundreds of systems are already in use around the world
When conventional cutting processes reach their limits or the requirements on surface quality of the interface are very high, EXAKT diamond band saws like the 300, 310 (CL & CP), and 311 series are the solution to your problems.
EXAKT diamond band saws are used on a daily basis around the world for thin sectioning. Applications from medicine and industry include:
Cutting of sensitive hard-and-soft tissue combinations for histological analysis
Complex components made of a wide variety of different materials from industrial production like sophisticated thermal setting plastic and thermoplastic structures, metals or other materials
Precision, consistency, versatility, and safety are the main feature of our thin section technology and our promise of executing demanding cutting tasks in research, production, quality assurance, and damage analysis in a practical way.
